Adorable Cat Game Stray Is Getting A Movie Adaptation

What a purr-fect subject matter

The fuzzy feline adventure Stray has been confirmed to be receiving a movie treatment, courtesy of Annapurna’s animation division.

Robert Baird, who serves as the co-head of Animation at Annapurna made the announcement to Entertainment Weekly following the success of their debut feature Nimona, mentioning that Stray was absolutely chosen from a list of potential film candidates that align with their other interactive offerings.

Releasing in 2022, Stray was a unique little game about a lost cat navigating a ruined city populated by robots. Assisted by a cute drone named B-12, the two avoided creepy bacteria monsters and solved a mystery as to what on earth happened.

Baird was pretty casual about their reasoning for why Stray would make an awesome movie, and honestly his points are all super accurate. You can’t go wrong with a cyberpunk tale about a lost kitty in the big city – he even went to far as to call the overall story a bit of a comedy:

“This is a game that’s all about what makes us human, and there are no humans in it, It’s a buddy comedy about a cat and a robot, and there’s such a hilarious dynamic. So, there’s comedy inherent in this, but there’s not one human being in this movie.”

There is also the incredibly valid point that Stray is not a human story. In fact, there would not be a single human character present within the storytelling – making for a fun casting process I am sure. Given the animated nature of the film, they likely won’t be wrangling cats on set; but here’s hoping some new feline voice actors emerge to define the experience.

Stray was a killer little title, with a tight atmosphere and a super neato slice of storytelling. It would take a deliberate act of sabotage to somehow screw up a movie adaptation, so we’ll be keeping an eye on this on as it develops.
